This news story was brought to my attention two days ago, but I held off from watching the video footage.
I could not face it up until now.
22 year old Oscar Grant III was shot dead by Oakland police on New Years Day in California, while laying face down and handcuffed on a train platform.
Details leading up to his arrest and subsequent MURDER are still sketchy.
However Grant, unarmed, was cooperating with officers before his death….
Johannes Mehserle, the police officer responsible for Grant’s death has since resigned and refuses to be interviewed.
Rest In Peace Oscar Grant.
